Stardate: Wednesday, November 25, 1998. That was the first time I had ever saw this adorable film, though it is still not my favorite in the series (That trophy goes to Part 3), but still adorable otherwise. I was 9 years old when I first rented it from the now-closed Hollywood Video on Woodway.
Anyway, the film starts off with a somewhat typical family of the 90s, The Taylors. The father is widowed and works as a raisin farmer, the son is into Elvis, and the daughter seems to be on the verge of rebellion. But then their lives change when the past comes to them. They discover miniature dinosaurs, which the 2 kids name after various music icons, like Elvis, Paula, Jagger, Hammer, and Madonna. But it's not until the sleazy museum curator, Rico Sarno (Played by Stephen Lee from Dolls, The Pit and the Pendulum, Ghoulies III, Robocop 2) wants them back. He was the one who had originally discovered the eggs that the dinosaurs hatched out of, in South America.
Like I said, this film is a childhood favorite. Now that I'm older, I will admit it is silly at times, but what's to expect? It's still the childhood favorite that I remember.
EXTRAS: The Paramount VHS (Which I own and sourced to DVD-R) has no trailers at the beginning, but the Videozone has an intro by Full Moon CEO Charles Band, where he talks about The Shrunken City and Remote and in depth details about Moonbeam, a behind the scenes, an interview with Peter and Andrea Von Sholly, and a trailer for Remote (1993)
